A weird aside: 5bdxcc now means any 5 bands: 6m and 2m dxcc now count
towards 5bdxcc. But I doubt QRP 2m DXCC will fall for a while (though
with satellites I might be eating my words soon ...)

Once again the ARRL strains itself to contain progress :-)

As I recall, qsos on *any* of the hf bands, including 30, count for basic
dxcc. There's no 5bdxcc endorsement for the band like there is for 12 and
17 though. As this cycle continues to decline, I expect the band to be
more and more important for dxing. Even now, the pileups can at times
rival anything you'll hear on 40 or 20.
